You know you are starting to mature as a software engineer when your activity on Github is not 100% commits.

This is a comparison of my activity in 2020 vs 2021.

Right now, I'm living in a co-living space in Paris, and using the provided internet connection.

When I visited "new" or less known sites, I was getting SSL errors. At first I thought it was a coincidence.

Then I found out that all of them were intercepted by a very invasive firewall that exists in the network.

It only got worse when I visited noip and I found out that it was blocked by the firewall because it's a dyndns service.

That's it, I'm getting a VPN. This is outrageous!
